I'd recommend adding notifications for when users comment back/write back in a chat. I tend to close the link or end up doing other things making me totally forget about the current Chat I'm having with someone about a question. It would be nice if we could be notified when user replies.

Otherwise, if we don't want to be notified we can just leave the chat.

    But if someone @replies you do get notified? As shown in this screenshot: i.sstatic.net/CyfFq.png

    You do get notified... just takes 15 minutes.

  • I have never been notified. Only when I am invited.

If a user @replies to you, you do get notified.

It's just partly cached, and the notification delivery to your global inbox can be delayed by ~ 30 mins, though you get a noty in the chat inbox immediately, as for the notifications when you're in the room.

There's how it looks in your global inbox (the one which is the "message box" in the top bar).

    @lukesIvi Do you get people addressing the messages to you using the @? Because if they're just chatting, you're not going to get notified. If you have your sound on, and you have the pings activated, you'll hear a ping notification every time someone directs a message at you, as well. That happens instantly. If you leave the chat room or ignore it, only then do you get the inbox notifications.

  • The user usually just types away and doesn't @ me. I'm usually having 1-1 conversations so it's pointless to @ all the time. Just a drag to have to @ someone every time, especially for a 1-1. In a group chat it's more understandable.
